Cavision SSN2818C overview

  • 1Description

The Caivision Next-Generation Slate with Color Clapper Sticks is an updated version of the classic film set clapper slate. Clapping sticks provide simple and virtually foolproof visual and audio sync points when using a separate audio device to record audio (double system sound). The slate features color swatches on the clap sticks, a pre-printed acrylic face to use available dry erase markers on, and an ABS resonance chamber on the back that amplifies the bang of the clap sticks closing, which is useful in noisy environments. The chamber also provides support to the slate itself, making it sturdier.

The slate's latch system holds the sticks closed, so they don't pop open when you are carrying the slate in between shots. The latch also means that you no longer need magnets and a stiff hinge to hold the slate closed, allowing the slate's single bolt hinge to provide free movement. A slot incorporated into the back of the slate provides a convenient way to hold the slate during operation. The slate is suitable for use on set, or as a presentation item to the filmmaker when the film is done shooting.

Resonance Chamber amplifies the clap of the sticks, making it a crisper sound.
Pre-printed text is under the top acrylic surface, protecting the printing from wear and blurring over time.

    Next-Generation Slate with Color Clap Sticks is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great with one Caveat I Just recently purchased this and have yet to use it on any productions. I can agree with the above posters about the nice audible clap from the resonance chamber... However, I have one big complaint. The Color sections of the Clapper are all stickers! Not only are they stickers, a few of them are slightly off size from the recessed areas they are supposed to fit within. The problem this creates is peeling. As I said, I have yet to use this clapboard. Yet, when I pulled it from the padded soft case that it's resided in for the 2 weeks since purchase, the edges of 3 of the 10 color stickers were peeling up and I had to press them firmly to reset them to the textured plastic that seems like the worst surface ever for a plastic sticker to adhere too. I can promise, it was placed into this case gently and in no way was I rough with it by any means. We all know what a clapboard goes through on set and even more so, between productions. I intend to either A, use an industrial strength plastic cement on each of them as they peel off, and they will. Or B, remove them entirely and possibly paint them with acrylic paint the exact color of a few colors from my Xbrite chart. If it wasn't for this, I'd easily give 5 Stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I've had slates that cost less but this one is put together well and made to last. The price is just a bit more but well worth it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stickers? The back design is great so I can hold it with one hand and not smudge the slate. Clasp grabs the sticks fine and gravity will do the trick for quiet slate. The issue is the stickers feel and look tacky. They started peeling off on day one. I'm disappointed I have to come up with a solution to these things falling off now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality I recently bought this and love it. It feels very well made and durable. The resonance chamber helps make the clap nice and clear while also offering a place to hold the slate without obstructing the camera's view of the writing. The fact that the print on it won't rub off over time is also a big plus to me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality The slate feels very durable. I also love that the print is protected under the acrylic surface so it won't wear off over time. The resonance chamber provides a nice clear sound when the sticks clap together. Overall a very well made slate.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful This thing is junk. The clasp is a decent idea, but executed EXTREMELY poorly. Very difficult to open the sticks, and you have really wack it to get the sticks to actually close. Warn your talent because soft-sticks is not an option. The actual sound it makes isn't very precise. It's not a clean 'snap'... more of a dull 'thud' with a weird click after. Also, this thing is all but impossible to operate with one hand. Product feels cheap, and I know this will break the first time it gets dropped. Surprised it survived shipping. Cavision should be ashamed for making this, and BH should be ashamed for carrying it. Order this if you hate your AC, or if you want to have a movie-themed birthday party for your 3-year-old. Looks great on a shelf, but looks even better in a trash can where it really belongs.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money even as a toy for a child This is a piece of junk. We work in full time production and use clappers in all of our recording. I pulled this clapper from the box and the first thing I notice is there isn't a magnet. Next the child like colored stickers began coming off almost immediately. I'll continue to use my smaller clapper, and will only use this for wall decoration if it can function that way. I'd never recommend this to anyone not even as a toy.
    Date published: 2015-05-09
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for professionals Just not a professional slate, I would never use this. The clasp is the worst idea, you need to clap the sticks very loudly anytime you want them to meet (sorry actor, you are now deaf). Then is the ridiculous flat back which makes it virtually impossible to slate with one hand. Great for film school though!
